Filters

You can use filters to select performers for your project. Tasks will only be shown to matching performers, rather than to all of them. Properly configured filters help you send tasks to a target group of performers. As a result, you'll get your results faster and spend less money.

To select performers for a pool, click Add filter on the pool editing page.

From the drop-down list, select audience presets and filters by profile data and device specifications.

Tip.

To add filters quickly, use the Audience presets or copy filters from another pool (the Copy settings from button).

All filters added to the pool are applied simultaneously. The criteria within a single filter are combined with the logical OR operator.

Audience presets

Presets of popular filters are available for your convenience. For example, for field tasks performed in Russia, you can immediately add the Mobile Russian-speaking performers group to make tasks available to Russian-speaking users of mobile devices.

To add a set of two or three filters at once, click Add filter  → Audience presets, and select the desired set.

Russian-speaking performers

A combination of Region by phone number and Languages filters: selects performers from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus who indicated knowledge of Russian in their profiles.

Moscow and Saint Petersburg

A combination of Region by phone number and Region by IP filters: selects performers from Russia who use IP addresses based in Moscow or St. Petersburg.

Firefox users

A combination of Region by phone number and Browser filters: selects performers from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus who use Firefox.

Mobile Russian-speaking performers

A combination of Client, Region by phone number, and Languages filters: selects performers from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus who indicated in their profiles that they know Russian and who use the Yandex.Toloka mobile app.

Mobile app for Android

A combination of Client and Operating system filters: selects performers who use Android devices to work with the Yandex.Toloka mobile app.

Mobile app for iOS

A combination of Client and Operating system filters: selects performers who use iOS devices to work with the Yandex.Toloka mobile app.

The number of performers selected by filters is shown in the Speed/quality section, in the line Task is available for N active users.

Skill

You can select performers with or without a skill and filter them by skill value.

For example, like this:

I need performers without a skill

Use the = operator and leave the value empty.



I need performers with a skill and the skill level doesn't matter

Use the operator and leave the value empty. For example, use this to choose performers who are already familiar with the type of tasks like those in your pool.



I need performers with a skill of a certain level
Add a filter, enter a value from 0 to 100, and use a set of operators. For example, you can select only those performers who previously completed a certain number of tasks of the type like in your pool.


Performer profile

Use filters from this group to select performers by the main profile data.

Languages

Make sure to add the Languages filter and specify the language of the instructions and text in the task.

Adult content

If there is adult content in the pool tasks, they will only be shown to performers who have agreed to see them. To select such performers, add the Adult content filter and select the On option.

City

You can choose performers who live in certain cities. Use this filter for field tasks or to search for data online.

Citizenship

Use this filter when the performer's citizenship may affect the quality of responses, like if your project asks performers to complete a survey, transcribe audio, or search for information online. You can also use this filter to restrict performers' access to tasks.

Date of birth

Using a set of operators, you can select an age-based audience among available performers.

Education

Add this filter if the performer's education may affect the quality of responses. Use the = or operator and select Secondary, Vocational secondary, or Higher education from the drop-down list.

Gender

You can choose performers of a certain gender if this matters for your project.

Country

Add this filter to restrict the audience by region.

Calculated data

Use filters from this group to select performers by rating in Yandex.Toloka, device or browser type, and software versions.

Performer rating

Each performer in Yandex.Toloka has a rating. Yandex.Toloka calculates it based on the quality of the performer's responses and their activity on the platform.

Add the Performer rating filter, enter the appropriate number in the Value field, and use a set of operators to select performers with the desired rating.



Browser

Use this filter if your tasks are intended for users with certain web browsers.

Device type

If the type of the performer's device matters, use the = and operators to set the requirements. For example, a smart watch isn't suitable for performing tasks like Side-by-side comparison.

Client

This filter indicates whether to publish your project tasks in the Yandex.Toloka mobile app.

Note. By default, tasks are only published in the web version of the platform.

If your project has field tasks, you need to select Mobile Toloka users among the performers.

To make a task available only in mobile apps, add the filter Client = Mobile Toloka.

Tasks can be run simultaneously in the web version and mobile app: to do this, add the filter Client = Toloka web version and Client = Mobile Toloka.

Operating system

Add this filter to select users of certain operating systems.

Tip. To choose the most popular desktop operating systems (MacOS, Windows, and Linux), add the Operating system filter three times and set the following values using the = operator: OS_X, WINDOWS, and LINUX.
Region by IP

To make a task available to users with IP addresses of a particular region, add the Region by IP filter and enter the region name. This is useful for field tasks.

Region by phone number

To more effectively choose performers by location, add the Region by phone filter.

Type of client application

Select this filter if the browser type determines whether performers match your project tasks (for example, you want them to complete field tasks in the Yandex.Toloka mobile version or to check how links are displayed in a mobile browser).

Client application and OS versions

Use this filter if you need to assign tasks to performers with particular app or OS versions (for example, if you are starting a software testing project or you know that your tasks can't be completed with some OS versions).

The product (app or OS) version is indicated by a number, for example, in AAA.BBB.CCC format, where:

  • AAA stands for the major version of a product that includes major and sometimes fundamental changes to the product.
  • BBB is a minor version of the product that usually includes minor changes and improvements.
  • CCC is a bugfix version of the product build in which bugs are fixed.

You can select performers with the full product version by specifying it in AAA.BBB.CCC format, or specify any part of the version.
